it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, stopbullying.gov where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best practices are being promo
these different languages and religions and basically for the first 50 years, almost -- certainly first several decades, people back in washington were saying, what have we done here? we've conquered this land but dough don't understand and it we can't good afternoon it. we should just give it back. give it back to mexico. it's too hard to run this place. there was so much violence. there was slavery and there was hostage taking and -- just unfamiliar country that people in washington didn't know what to do with. that's part two. part three is about kit carson's role in the conquest of the navajo people, and everything he did with that. monster slayer it's called, and this is from the final act of his long career, and it's probably what he is best known for, this sort of a scorched earth campaign he led into navajo country that resulted in their conquest and their removal from their beloved lands, and this great experiment that went on to try to force the navajo to become -- to settle down and become farmers and christians living in this sort of reservation on the border with texas. so it's a b
there was a san francisco interface council there was the san francisco conference on religion, race and social concerns which for 25 years was the voice of social justice in the city and county of san francisco. it was that movement that gave birth to the san francisco interfaith council whose mission it is to bring people together of different faiths, to celebrate our diverse spiritual and religious traditions, build understanding, and serve our city. it was a previous mayor that challenged the interface council to step up to the place, to respond to its moral responsibility to care for the homeless at a time of crisis spun out of control, and we did. for almost a quarter of a century we have opened our congregation doors, fed and provided a warm and safe place for homeless men to sleep during the coldest and rainiest nights of the year. it's been this mayor and his predecessors who look to what happened at hurricane katrina, saw the key role that congregation leaders, facilities and congre gants can play at the time of a diseafert disaster and called us to stakeholders and mayor lee invi
religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie

to, you know, kind of be a jerk. but also play the religion card as an excuse. >> reporter: pastor bell was part of a party of ten, eating at an applebee's in st. louis. the pastor did not appreciate the automatic 18% gratuity charge to large group. she scrolled on the receipt, i give god 10%. why do you get 18? and signed it pastor. that was too much for chelsea, who posted it on the online. >> i thought it was comically immature. >> pastor bell wasn't laughing once the receipt went viral and posters started calling her. >> you hypocrite pastor. >> reporter: chelsea wasn't even the waitress serving that table at the end of the night. she heard about the receipt from the actual server. >> she calls me over and says you're not going to believe this. >> reporter: the 18% gratuity was taken dily
. you know, it is an area that does not want somebody else's religion or life. the one better health care and better schools. they visit washington and do not understand the fight in a lot of ways. >> specifically when it comes to technology related issues, do you hear anything? >> there is concern about innovation and the role that current law has in the area of copyright and patents stifling innovation. that is typical to remedy. we have a patented build that i did not vote for last year, having worked on it for 12 years. it did not do what we hoped it would do. we have an overarching scheme on copyright enforcement that is probably not that positive in terms of technology and innovation. i'm sure you all remember soapa. i'm talking about individuals who are inventing things and creating things real that there is a problem in terms of the copyright and he can become together and make sure that the laws work in the internet age? that is something i went to work on. i will be introducing some bills. try to get a discussion going. >> when you walk around here, do you see a lot of cons
daily and meaningful contact with a person of another race or religion. and then i had another trial after this was done in another jurisdiction that shall go unnamed, and i would say there were maybe 5 percent of the jurors, potential jurors, who had had meaningful contact with a person of a different race or ethnicity and that's really what this is about. one of my least favorite words is the word tolerance because, you know, i tolerate brussel sprouts but if you simply tolerate the diversity that is america, you are going to, you are aspiring for mediocrity. when we have, and this gets back to your question, when we have leaders that embrace diversity and that build a culture that says, you know what, if you want to compete in the global economy tomorrow, pal, you've got to embrace diversity. why does coca-cola write a brief to the united states supreme court and general motors and microsoft on issues of diversity and higher education? because they know if they want to get ahead, they've got to embrace that diversity. if they want to continue to be a fortunes 50 company, there
take out representatives of the 5 major religions and do the same thing and we model in front of high school and middle school students how the faiths can sit down like we are sitting here today and have conversations about our commonalities but about our differences as well. many of the comments we get from students is, wow, you guys can sit up there and talk because most of the pictures our students see are the ones that have been playing across our screens the last 2 or 3 days. we hope by challenging that we can prevent bullying and harassment we've been seeing here today. >> thank you, amina stacy is manager of communications for the los angeles giants. >> if you think about what our mission is, you probably think our mission is to win the world series every year, which hopefully this year we're on the right track, but actually our mission statement, we just went through an exercise but our mission statement has always been to enrich the community through innovation. and it's very, i am very proud of the fact that the giants have been able to take that mission and bring it into
will be submerged and the arabs will impose sharia or whatever else their islamic religion requires. >> but when you look at the obvious oppression of nearly 2 million palestinians on the gaza strip in particular, it's a terribly depressing -- >> sure. >> helpless situation. >> and they could change it. they could change it. >> can only they change it or do the israelis have to also give a little bit? >> of course. >> everything about compromise? >> of course the israelis have to give, and they will. and omar, who was the prime minister, said he was within a hair's breadth of dealing with abu abbas, but it's the fear that the palestinian leadership has that if they enter into a treaty with israel, they will be murdered. >> when you see the political rhetoric being deployed not just there but in washington in particular, it's so vicious now. >> it is. >> you went through a bit of this yourself, very personal in nature. >> yeah. >> when you see it now, is it as bad as it has ever been, do you think? >> worse. i enjoyed my stay in congress. most people today do not. too many people who have been electe
, religion, etc. discrimination in the fact as opposed to judging the size of eggs or something, being discriminate. and so by giving it a name, it started to have its own life. the ability of a president to name something -- i'm jumping ahead a little bit. but in 1934 franklin d. roosevelt was going to give his annual address to congress. it was from day one in this country the president in the beginning of the year would give an address to the nation and to the congress. and roosevelt in 1934 says, oh, i'll give it a name, calls it the state of the union. so a lot of these testimonies which were sort of created by presidents, we think, are there from day one. in fact, they're ones that have been added later. and, again, some of them are just wonderful. i mean, i'll just jump to a couple. zachary taylor created the term first lady. that did not exist. he applied it to dolly madison. that was the first anyone had ever used that term. he said the first lady of the land. benjamin harrison was keep the ball rolling. i'm jumping around a little bit, but it's sort of fun. woodrow wilson had
are -- >> always a civil rights guy. i'm still a civil rights guy going way, way back. to me religion freedom is different. it is just different. if you have a religious conscience you should be able to abide by it. the government should not be able to tell you otherwise. this is just a health care mandate. >> the government is not telling what you to do. >> they've created a right to employer provided contraception. you've created in the constitution, in the penumbra a new right to -- exactly. >> you've created that in your definition, your interpretation of it. but clearly what the obama administration is trying to do is to figure out a way to thread the needle here, to provide coverage for people and at the same time deal with the concerns of the religious organizations. the fact they continue to make compromises is an indication that they're trying to be flexible. >> well, not alienating its female base, which it tried to get all ginned up, isn't that basically what it is? the whole element of the democratic party, far left, hollywood, that just doesn't get the religious objection. they t
a consequence. we know these people are preyed upon by those who would use religion and philosophies about government to do great damage to the world. this is a tough challenge. and we talked about this issue for four hours in the foreign relations committee this morning. so i spend some time on this issue. i talk about our young people. i don't know in the 12 years i've been in the senate if i've ever turned a college or a high school or a grade school down on a speech or anything other than if i just couldn't do it or i had votes. that's our first responsibility, any of us who hold public office, is to connect with this next generation. it is to reverse the optics with them as well as reverse the optics with the rest of the world. and it doesn't matter whether americans think we're treated unfairly or not. latest gallup poll, latest poll coming out of the middle east last week -- some of you may have seen this -- more than 8 out of 10 residents of the middle east, countries, by the way, where we have strong relationships with leadership and the governments, jordan, saudi arabia, united a
. and on the other hand, does the school have a first amendment freedom of religion argument? and that's the battle. ultimately, what's interesting here is the school jumped the gun, miguel. what happened is they brought a federal lawsuit against the teachers who never brought the case in federal court in the first place. the federal court will dils miss the case without ever answering this critical question. so we'll really never know the answer because there's no what the courts call justifiable issue. >> part of the argument from the teacher's side is the school is a for-profit sbi fi, not a not profit. >> doesn't matter. >> the if the school is receiving funds for the state and they are for profit, certain rules apply to them as opposed to if they were a not for profit. whether or not the teachers would be compelled to respond to an answer like this or to assert their faith in a questionnaire, which they denied, i think because the school is a profit-based institution the teachers had every right to deny it. it is discrimination. and i think the teachers will ultimately win this case. >> avery,
for artist who are freethinkers. a lot of people practice the religion, the lifestyle, the intellectual thoughts, it has always been very interesting place for people who are really thinking for themselves. it is only natural that gorgeousness of the sce the sce, visual artists and the performing artist who managed to dance and sing at 7000 feet above sea level is amazing. but the availability of a small town makes it easy for people to become intimately acquainted with those in the art to serve on boards fairly quickly to attend event and meet artists. the cross culture of visualize performing arts and literary arts is just unnatural. thank you. we are in albuquerque, we produced this beautiful book. we had some left over. those leftovers went to the city.
, tribe, religion, region, whatever, your industry these days. politics is a lot about power. but we always hope that some people in the discussion of politics and policy will stand for something bigger, something broader. like the public interest, freedom and justice, the ideals of the declaration of the independence and the pledge of allegiance. we hope in washington that's what think tanks do. think tanks are separate from abstracted from the day-to-day struggles for either political power or special interests benefits from public policy. obviously, there are some who do that better than others. in the ideal of the think tank is committed to the public interest, even though we may disagree what the public interest is. some think tanks insist they don't have a world view a perspective, a political philosophy. they are just about analyzing and seeing what works. i'm in favor of that. but to define if something is working you have to define what the goals you seek to achieve. is freedom one of the goals that policy ought to enhance? is justice? is social progress? widespread prosperi
. the state has become the major religion in this country. the icons in washington -- they have to destroy every aspect of people who hold to a higher moral authority. host: the headline in this morning "the wall street journal" -- castle in michigan, on our lands for democrats. -- ethel in michigan, on our line for democrats. caller: my question is, what happened between the separation between church and state? i believe this is more of a legal issue than a religious issue. the religious issue is for the contraceptive. i can understand that. why is this being mixed in with state issues? he did not have to take them if you do not want them, if you do not believe in them. don't use them. i just cannot understand why this does not go away. i am really quite tired of it all. thank you. host: more from the article in this morning's "the wall street journal." they write -- the new rules would require insurers to pay the up-front cost. our next call comes from carol in ohio, on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. i am totally against what the catholic church and republicans are doing a
of politics, and he will have problems, because he not only changed the religion, but the narnlgs and he was in the bush administration on health and changed some of the policy positions, and he has even changed campaign tactics and the reason he did not get elected governor and kathleen blanco did is because he was the only governor at the time who would not attack somebody, so he has evolved. i am not claiming every one of these things, but the third child, he was mysteriously there and delivered the third child, and i don't know that any or any of the all things lack authenticity, but when you add them together and watch him perform, and he is like the republican al gore of in terms of being -- >> or john kerry or something. i want to bring in state senator karen carter peterson of louisiana and chairwoman of the louisiana democratic party, and i want to bring her in, karen, on this question, patrick said, lo look, and this is fair, because we do have difficulties around this with black representatives as well, but like you don't want to attach some racial or ethnic authenticity on th

of rights. free interests of religion is what is under attack here. all it does is put regulatory language what was proposed a year ago by the administration as a so-called compromise. it is not. it's a farce. it's an accounting trick. catholic university, for example, is compelled by the state under obama care to offer health insurance and the health insurer is compelled by the state to provide coverage of contraceptives. the cost obviously is going to be shifted back to catholic university and its students. simple police officer a gimmick. the worst part how you define worship. churches you worship on sunday are completely exempt because that would be outrage. the secularists at the department of h.h.s. religious only the place where you go on sunday. only a place where you worship god. but if you are a catholic soup kitchen, where you are doing god's work, that's not considered religious. that from and of itself is an outrage. >> the crux of this is that nonprofits hobby horse. >> hobby lobby? >> the craft store. >> the cavity craft store which they are not part of this provision as wel
